A new business is to take over empty premises in New Canal.

Salisbury estate agents Myddelton & Major have announced that 72 New Canal has been let to a new food business.

The Lebanese takeaway business will specialise in falafels.

The site was previously occupied by an East European grocery shop, but it has been vacant since September 2018.

According to the planning statement (ref: 20/11495/FUL), submitted on March 11, the building is a Grade II listed building, and the New Canal front is an early 19th century warehouse of three storeys.

The premises include Stokes' Warehouse.

The planning application was for "a fast food outlet specialising in Lebanese food", which will be "solely a takeaway facility with no seating" inside.

The document adds that there will be no alterations to the facade to New Canal.

Myddelton & Major retail partner Simon Lee said that the firm is "delighted" to be involved in "bringing yet another vacant property back into occupation, adding further vibrancy to the city centre".
